Asking “What do You Belong to?” and Other Life-or-Death Questions

“Don’t start looking in the Bible for the answers it gives. Start by listening for the questions it asks. . .”  –Frederick Buechner

Sometimes a story catches your heart with its truth–a truth that is piercing and happening even thousands of years after the story was first told.

Like the story of that earnest young man (the Bible calls him the rich young man) who came to Jesus to ask what he must do to inherit eternal life.

I am sharing a reflection on this story this week at Janet Hagberg’s blog At River’s EdgeI’d love to you have you join me there.
